Microsoft has revealed the entertainment apps that will be available for the launch of the Xbox Series X|S. The list of supported apps includes all those that are currently available on the Xbox One along with a few surprises.
In a blog post on the official Xbox Wire site today, the company confirmed that the likes of Netflix, Disney+, Spotify, YouTube, and Amazon Prime Video will all be available to download immediately from the Microsoft Store. Joining the roster for the first time on an Xbox console will be Apple TV, which will release for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S on November 10.
Taking advantage of the extra power of the next-gen systems, apps like Netflix, Vudu, and Disney+ will also be upgraded to support Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. This will give users access to advanced visual technology such as HDR alongside more immersive audio.
The full list of apps coming to the new consoles includes:
- HBO Max
